Staten Island vacation rentals

Soak up the Big Apple from Staten Island

Just a hop across the Hudson from Brooklyn, Staten Island vacation rentals sit in one of the more off-beat boroughs of the Big Apple. If you've already checked off sites like the Empire State and Broadway, then this one could be the intro to local life you've been looking for. Join coffee sippers in the Brazilian-style cantinas of Tompkinsville, or munch on Italian pizzas down Victory Boulevard. Hit up the Staten Island Children's Museum for family fun, or wonder at Greek Revival works in historic Richmond Town. Get cultural in Snug Harbor, or splash about on South Beach. The choice is yours.

Staten Island is multicultural

Between wandering Tibetan art collections or sampling the Liberian kitchen, you'll soon get to grips with the multicultural vibes of this corner of New York City. The streets are packed with local microbreweries, pubs, and intimate live music joints all primed for the evenings. The gastronomy is eclectic in excess _ think Spanish tapas and Japanese sushi, not to mention teaching chefs to help you hone your international cooking skills. And if you really want to see the heart of the Big Apple, there's nothing better than a ferry ride over the Upper Bay and into the Hudson.

Staten Island is for all ages

Start your visit here with a jaunt to the Staten Island Museum, where the exhibits fuse fossilized eggs and historic wax seals from the colonial era. Then, it's onto the Staten Island Zoo to meet slithering snakes and the famous Staten Island groundhog. Or, you could just wander into one of the local parks _ the North Shore Esplanade is lovely in the summer, while Silver Lake Park is awash with great birding spots. Meanwhile, those with Staten Island vacation rentals close to Snug Harbor enjoy unrivaled access to the Staten Island Children's Museum _ one of the largest in America.

Sleepless entertainments on Staten Island

The joys of Staten Island aren't just limited to one season of the year. The riverside walks and large parks might be more pleasant during the summer months, but there are bonuses to booking those Staten Island vacation rentals between December and March, too: festive markets, cozy caf_s, lower rates. And when June and July do come around, the whole district booms into life, with walking tours of the historic neighborhoods and regular evening music events aplenty.

The Hudson meets the sea in Staten Island

Staten Island is the southernmost borough of New York's five. It's set out between the Upper Bay and the Lower Bay, where the waters of the Hudson River finally drift into the New Jersey Bight. Much less built-up than the downtown districts of the Big Apple, you're sure to find pockets of calm here. Take sprawling Latourette Park with its wooded trails and rolling fields. Or, look to the rejuvenated Isle of Meadows, where undulating fields host herons and ibises on the border with NJ.
